Bollywood actress Ananya Pandey was questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on Friday for over four hours. This is the second round of questioning for the 22-year-old actress.
Ananya, dressed in a white top and jeans, was seen entering the NCB premises at Ballard Estate in south Mumbai around 2 pm on Friday afternoon. She was spotted leaving the NCB office around 6:30 pm, accompanied by her actor-father Chunky Pandey.
On Thursday, she was questioned for over two hours by the anti-drugs agency in the drugs-on-cruise case.
The NCB on Thursday questioned the actress after her name allegedly cropped up in WhatsApp chats during the agency's probe in the drugs-on-cruise case in which, Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, has been arrested.
On Wednesday, the anti-drugs agency raided Ananya's house in Bandra before sending her a summon to appear before it later in the day to record her statement.
The NCB officials seized her laptop and mobile phone during the raid. The actress then reached the NCB office along with her actor father at around 4pm for questioning.
The NCB raided Ananya's house after her name was mentioned in certain WhatsApp chats between her and Aryan allegedly found on the latter's mobile phone, according to reports.
However, the NCB has not yet officially clarified about her role in the case or released a statement on the matter.
Bigg Boss fame Kamaal Rashid Khan said in Twitter that NCB will formally arrest Ananya Pandey on October 25.
Aryan is currently lodged in Mumbai's Arthur Road jail and will stay locked there in judicial custody until October 30 or granted bail by the court.
Aryan, along with others, was arrested by the NCB on October 3 after the agency conducted a raid on a cruise ship off Mumbai coast on its way to Goa.
